I mean, come on Michelle….you would think that you would at least get some 3×5 cards with a couple of notes on them to make sure you don’t make a colossal mistake like this one…Do a little research before you spew complete non-sense while on video. American’s don’t take to kindly to lies about our Founding Fathers and our history.
It’s no mystery how much Michelle Obama hates America and everything our country stands for. But her knowledge of American history is equally lacking, as evidenced by her recent speech at the National Archives in Washing D.C. Speaking to a group of newly-naturalized American citizens, she spoke about our Founding Fathers, falsely claiming that none of the signers of the Declaration of Independence were even born in America.
“It’s amazing that just a few feet from here where I’m standing are the signatures of the 56 Founders who put their names on a Declaration that changed the course of history, and like the 50 of you, none of them were born American – they became American,” Michelle blabbed to the large group of brand new American citizens.
You might want to fact check that. Thomas Jefferson, who not only signed but wrote the Declaration of Independence, was actually born in Virginia. Other signers to our historic document, Benjamin Franklin, was born in Pennsylvania, and John Adams was born in Massachusetts. In fact, only 8 of the 56 men who signed the Declaration of Independence were born in other countries.
To make the First Lady’s remarks even more embarrassing, was her claim that the document was signed in Washington D.C., when the document was actually signed in Philadelphia.
